Stateless Nation: The Kurds Unreliable, untrustworthy traitors, or nationalist, freedom-loving patriots, or what?
Point of View • Turkey, Iraq, Iran, and Syria may see the Kurds as unreliable, untrustworthy traitors who want to break apart those countries. • The Kurds are a nation – a people with a sense of common ethnicity, history, and purpose. They see their cause as nationalist patriotism. • Neither the UN or any country has taken up their cause and supported the creation of an independent Kurdistan.
